Comments: We have lost our direct connection to WX4ILM due to power outages. KF4VGX relayed a report from local Wilmington, North Carolina SKYWARN repeaters of a measured 2-minute sustained wind of 62 MPH. Unknown direction but it may be Easterly. WX4ILM busy handling reports as the eye comes ashore and did not respond to follow-up questions.
